Contraindications for Uttanasana don't stop at HBP, glaucoma, eye problems, previous stroke, epilepsy, anuerysm and all heart conditions.

Here are more conditions to be aware of:

Osteoarthritis of the knees - seated forward bend is better. There should never be locking of any joints in yoga, but mention it again.

Pre-existing injury to the legs, hips, back or shoulders.

Diarrhea

In the case of back injury, practice this pose with bent knees, or perform Ardha Uttanasana (also called monkey pose), with your hands on a chair or wall with the spine parallel to the floor.

In the case of spinal disorder, scoliosis, or excessive curvatures of the spine: bend forward only to the point of creating a flat spine.

Dizziness or Acidity: Place feet hip width apart and avoid pushing into the pose. Let gravity dictate the depth of this asana.
